COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American-style muscle gets backed up here with real kiwi horsepower. A long, aromatic list of hops like Centennial, Citra and Simcoe should lead you to expect a massive bitterness and sensory hop presence, and you wouldn’t be far off that expectation at all. One for the hop heads.

bmeup (602) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - FEB 4, 2016
Amber orange with a fading head. Nose is pleasant tropical fruit and sweet malt. Taste is more resinous side with sweet malt still there as to help balance. Bitter finish. Really good NZ style APA.

I couldn’t pick the aroma - it was delicious and there was an unusual flower, something like boronia. I ran out of beer before I nailed it down, so will have to try again

gnoff (9281) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - OCT 16, 2015
Draught as part of a paddle, at Keg & Brew Sydney on October 14, 2015.
Hoppy, citrus, fruity, zest, some pith taste. Short, fruity, citrus, slight bitter aftertaste. Medium to fizzy mouthfeel, medium bitterness that lingers with a dry sensation. Clear golden color, white head with lacing. Hoppy, citrus, a bit malty scent.

Moderately high carbonation and crisp taste. A 500 ml bottle poured clear with a very light head. Tastes light with a beautiful fresh hop palate and a nice mouthfeel.

KeefOz (1263) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUL 27, 2015
Poured a clouded pale amber with 5mm of off-white foam for a head that diminished slowly to a collar that laced OK. Carbonation medium and fine. Aroma of nice fruity hops with citrus/grapefruit dominate. Taste not very sweet and the bitterness is a bit tart; not a pleasing taste. Light body. Crisp and slightly dry with a moderately strong lingering tart bitterness.

500ml bottle poured orange gold frothy & very aromatic with loads of citrus & hops wafting up the taste is all floral piny hops with toffee malty & tangy citrus flavours finishing quite dry

Dredd (764) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - JUL 9, 2015
Cracking beer. Deep orange amber pour, grassy hop notes. Good bitterness. Rate it above a lot of contenders

StevieT (1244) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 23, 2015
From a bottle. Biscuit malt aroma, smooth, not too much of a hop punch, might have faded a bit with age. Pretty nice drop.
